Supplies for a Monogrammed

Instructions to Make a Monogrammed Pillowcase

  1. Center the Joy Letters Monograms onto the pillowcase edge, then follow the instructions on the packaging to iron them into place. When creating monograms, here's the order for the letters: First Name, Last Name, Middle Name. Designer Tip! I used the white monograms as is for a subtle look on my white pillowcase. If you want something that is bolder, you can dye the monograms any color you want!
  2. Arrange your iron-on flower images around the monogram. Follow the instructions on the transfer paper packaging carefully to ensure that your images transfer correctly.

And that's it! To care for your pillowcase, be sure to wash it inside out, gentle cycle, in cold water. Then let it air dry.I hope you'll try this project out. Special pillowcases like this can become family heirlooms, filled with meaning.
